PORT BYRON, Ill. – The Camanche girls knew their out-of-state matchup on Monday night was going to be a tough one.
The Indians just notched their first win last week, and were looking at a seasoned Riverdale team.
The Rams have lost just once this year, and it was a three-point loss to Amboy. Going off of records, it was going to be hard for the Indians to take this one.
It really was a game of runs. The Indians allowed the Rams to go only multiple scoring stretches, setting them back farther and farther every quarter.
The Rams opened the game with a 9-0 run, easily taking a double digit lead after just eight minutes of play.
Even then, the Rams rattled off 10 straight to start the second quarter. By the time the team’s broke for halftime, the Indians trailed 35-11.
Offense was nearly non-existent in the third quarter, with the Indians putting up just three points compared to the Rams’ 15. The end of the third included a 12-0 scoring run from Riverdale.
Camanche falls to 1-4 on the season.
The Indians have a short turnaround. They return to River Valley Conference play on Tuesday, making a short trip to Northeast High School to take on a local rival.
